“Map the Meal Gap” is a tool that depicts hunger at the community level. Select your state from the interactive map, and start learning more about the residents struggling with hunger and the food banks that serve them. This study digs down to the county level, examining food insecurity rates, average meal cost, and income levels of food insecure persons. Using this data, Feeding America is able to spotlight the gap between available federal resources and actual need. This is a powerful tool that spotlights both the necessity of the food banking system and the holes in the government’s safety net.
